old tools box restoration #1: The tool box

01-27-2010 07:32 PM by bern92 | 10 comments »

I juste want to share with you Jocks my little hand tools collection. It was a gift from a old judge who got the tool box of his great grand father who use to build home in 1875 to 1905. He was from Quebec Canada and he participated in building the great resorts in Banff, Lakelouise and all those places in the Rockies. Most of the tools came from that tool box and some i got from friends and garage sale…...here’s the metal plane part a the my tools and one wooden plane. I will pos...

Miter/Workbench Station #1: The Beginning

01-27-2010 06:25 PM by alexbarlage | 10 comments »

Miter Saw / Workbench in stock lumber stage Framed base of bench, 5/8” OSB, 2×4 frame 16” O.C Base with 1/8” sacrificial hardboard on top. I need some opinions on the hardboard fastening, can’t decided which route to go. Should I use fasteners or adhesive? I’m leaning towards the adhesive, but then once you pick that, you then have a broad spectrum of types of adhesive. What has everyone else used in this application? I plan on ruining the top at so...

My Rikon 14" Deluxe Bandsaw Journey #1: And its Off!!

01-27-2010 05:54 PM by Hoakie | 5 comments »

After blowing up the motor on my Jet 12”, I decided to upgrade to what I want rather than spending money to fix the motor. As a result, I began obsessively reviewing 14” band saws, and I have ultimately decided to buy the Rikon 10-325 14” Deluxe model. Thanks to all of you who came before me who asked the question “Which 14” band saw is the best” and to those of you who left such great responses debating the topic. I made the purchase through Amazon f...

Twin-Sized Bed With Pull-Out Desk, Closet, and Dresser #3: Drawers and Drawer Fronts from Reclaimed Wood.

01-27-2010 05:25 PM by gbarteck | 1 comment »

One thing I like the idea of is using reclaimed wood, if possible. I like the idea of reycling in almost any context, and to some small extent in can help reduce the amount of trees that have to be harvested for lumber. I have a friend that I met via the Band Booster group at my son’s high school. He is one of the nicest, most generous people I have known. I happens that over time Don was able to salvage various amounts of lumber from his workplace. It seems that the company ever...

Air Compressor Station #1: Cart Carcass

01-27-2010 04:05 PM by David Craig | 3 comments »

I bought a compressor last week; a PC 3 nailer combo pack. With the limited space I have in the shop, portability is a necessity. Wood magazine had a plan for a compressor station in a back issue that I had so I decided to build their model. I spent a few hours last night cutting the parts and prepping the carcass. This item is more carpentry than true woodworking. Joinery is simple butt joints but will hold up for what it is being used for. The base carcass will hold the compressor an...

A Beginner's Thoughts #1: Moving to the Dark Side...

01-27-2010 06:03 AM by MikeInPenetanguishene | 17 comments »

... as I’ve heard some hand-tool users call it. Yes – I’m talking power tools. Mind you, I have a fair set of power tools now, but my initial intentions for this hobby was to learn the craft via hand tools. However, the more I read, learn and do woodworking the more I’m drawn in to, not only the ease of use, but also the plethora of information available for power tools. Seems that every tutorial I pick up involves some use of a power tool, beit a table-saw, drill-...

Entertainment Center #2: Day 2

01-27-2010 05:20 AM by kolwdwrkr | 6 comments »

Well another day is down the crapper. LOL. Everything went okay today, but I lost some time. I had to go to the shop to make the countertops. That’s an hour I lost in drive time. I also started getting frustrated that I didn’t have enough material for the kick box, but then I found some oak ply I had. So that worked out. I don’t have enough poplar for the doors, which is the next step. I also need to figure out how to put a 48” bead board back in a 51 1/2” h...

Extremely Average #25: Photographing my Blog pt. 1

01-27-2010 04:20 AM by Ecocandle | 19 comments »

If a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it’s as though I’ve neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up. -Richard Avedon I didn’t know about the work of Richard Avedon before his exhibit at the Corcoran at the end of 2008. As a volunteer docent at the gallery I got to hear a lecture from the curator of his traveling exhibit, and learn about his amazing works. I became a fan. This wasn’t the beginni...

What was I thinking?

01-27-2010 03:52 AM by GregPT | 6 comments »

We put an addition on our home (my biggest project) and we decided that a floor to ceiling wall unit on the the wall of the original house, leading into the new addition would be great! So, I decided to take on this big project (my biggest woodworking one ever) and it’s going on much longer than I anticipated… should have known better. :) Here’s the before pic of the wall… Originally we were thinking bookcases floor to ceiling and around the door, then we said, w...
